Been wanting to force myself to write more, and share some of it publicly. Saw @fabianarbor do this recently so I’m going to start doing a monthly update on a few aspects of my life. So here’s my update for September 2023


If you’re new here, I’m building Flowstage, a 2-man design studio helping early stage tech startups.


Flowstage


Client 1: Diva Staking (ETH liquid staking with distributed validators)


We’ve been working with Diva since July, they’re an awesome client of ours.

In September we made them:

  • A new website for a new initiative

  • A 60s video to explain this initiative

  • Design for their booth in Istanbul

  • Handful of POAPs

  • Handful of social media posts


Client 2: [redacted] (web3 fashion brand)


We did two weeks of logo design explorations and then put the subscription on pause while they find another fashion hire to help their team


Social


Twitter: Started posting consistently again halfway into the month, gained 421 followers and 2.5M impressions from a few posts that blew up. Don’t really have a follower/engagement goal here, just trying to get more exposure for potential clients to see us.


Instagram: Haven’t been posting much. Just posting on here so people I know can see what I’m working on


Products

Working on a “Brand Market” for Flowstage, a catalog of premade logos to make the branding process easier, faster, and cheaper for early stage companies


Also occasionally making posters for fun


Athletics

Currently doing volleyball specific training, and playing a few times a week

  • Shuttle sprints, Heavy leg work, Stretches, Explosiveness, Stamina, Knees, Shoulder, etc.


Also surfing roughly once a week


October Goals

  • Get to 4 clients at 5k or 8k/mo

  • Launch Flowstage Brand Market (our productized service for branding)

  • Lots of social media content

  • Lots of poster design

  • Meet and talk with more creatives
